Toy Store Volunteers

We need lots of volunteers to prepare for this year’s Toy Store Event, which will be held on Saturday, December 18th at Chester Charter Scholars Academy (CCSA)! Last year’s drive-thru, winter wonderland experience was such a success – but we really missed interacting with our friends in person! This year, we have created a perfect way to bring the holiday spirit to the kids while maintaining safe and cautious measures.

We REALLY need your help! This year we are looking for personal shoppers and wrappers who will do the shopping and wrapping on the 15th and 16th of December, in West Chester at Christ Community Church. Donated toys will already be on hand at the church and will be sorted on the morning of Wednesday, December 15th.

Personal shoppers will be given a child’s name and wish list. They will use this list to shop through donated gifts for their selected child. Wrappers will then take these gifts, wrap them, bag, and tag them so that they are ready for delivery to Chester. Once completed, bags will be loaded into a truck on Friday afternoon and moved to Chester on Saturday morning where families will be assigned times the following day to come drive through a winter wonderland and pick up their child’s gifts.

We would really love for you to volunteer with us. We have so many different roles and needs, people of all ages can volunteer! You can even volunteer as an entire family! To make it as easy as possible, we have organized our needs by day!

*It is required AT ALL TIMES that masks be worn by our staff and volunteers. Wednesday, December 15th – Saturday December 18th, masks and face coverings must be worn, irregardless of vaccination status.
